INTERNATIONAL DAY FOR THE GIRL CHILD


Today, SHADES OF US joins the world in commemorating the INTERNATIONAL DAY OF THE GIRL CHILD!

We believe EVERY GIRL CHILD deserves the following;

           1.     Equal Access To Basic Human Rights;

           2.     Equal Access To Education;

           3.     Equal Access To Proper Health Care;

           4.     Equal Pay For Same Quality Or Quantity Of Work/Job;

           5.     Equal Right To Vote And Be Vote For And To Be In Leadership Positions With Intimidation;

           6.     Equal Access To Opportunities;

           7.     Equal Access To Inheritance;

           8.     Right To Choose Whom To Marry And IF/WHEN To Marry;

           9.     Protection From Rape, Pedophilia, Domestic Violence Or Abuse, Emotional Abuse, Patriarchy And Misogyny;

          10.    Protection From Harmful Cultural And Religious Practices Like Female Genital Mutilation, Public Flogging For Perceived Wrongs Etc;

With this in mind, we agree with this year’s theme for the International Day of the Girl Child as put out by the United Nations. It says, Girls' Progress = Goals' Progress: What Counts for Girls. If girls progress in all the spheres mentioned above, the sustainable development goals will progress.

Add your voice today! What can YOU do to make girls progress?
